The Chicago Cubs Made Some History Today

Chicago Cubs

Today’s win over the Pittsburgh Pirates wasn’t just a 21-0 football-style romp in the ballpark, it was also a little bit of Chicago Cubs franchise history.

Today was the largest shutout victory in the team’s history, probably:

You have to drop in the “probably” because records weren’t kept quite as well before 1901, and the game was fundamentally different back then, too. A 21-0 shutout back in 1899 isn’t quite the same trick as in the game today. So I’ll leave the probably in there, but I’m thinking this is history.

A little bit of teamwork history with the Tigers game, too, which featured SEPARATE history being made:

Good day for baseball. Enjoy the highlights of the Cubs blowout if you missed the game or just want to re-enjoy:
